Out of Zone Enrolment

Out of Zone Enrolments

We are accepting out of zone enrolments now.

Tauwhare School has an out of zone enrolment policy which allows a few children and their siblings to attend the school even though they may live outside the official school zone. The map of our school zone is available here and the process for enrolment is outlined in the document below.

We welcome new enrolments at Tauwhare School. Children who live within our school zone are automatically able to enrol at and need only to provide a copy of a birth certificate and immunisation records. Please ring the school office 07 8240864, email admin@tauwhare.school.nz or pop in to fill in an enrolment form. Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school, if they have not already done so, to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.
